Posted By: RamonFor the sale price, this would be a great purchase for someone looking to get into Jap knives. Perhaps if you have a nice German chef's knife and want to inexpensively spice up your kit. It works great, cone pretty sharp ootb. It is not IMO going to pull of the sexiest thinnest of cuts without thinning. But in practical terms it will cut what you need and is comfortable to use. If you already got some nice jks beyond shun classics, I would justt use them and save for a higher performer unless you want to thin it. I ended up selling mine for close to what I paid. Make sure you treat it like a Jap knives should be treated. The guy I sold it to put a lot of little chips in the edge and was completely unaware how they got there. It was pristine when I sold it to him.
